Polis Calls on Congress to End Marijuana Prohibition

Speaking alongside industry advocates, U.S. Rep. Jared Polis (D-CO) called Wednesday for Congress to end the prohibition on marijuana, stressing the need to reduce drug violence while hailing the medical cannabis market's capacity for growing the economy. "Ending the failed policy of prohibition with regard to marijuana will strike a major blow against the criminal cartels that are terrorizing Americans and Mexicans on both sides of the border," Polis said at the National Press Club, in response to a question from Raw Story. "It's been estimated that the drug cartels drive about half of ...

Jared Polis has ideas for closing federal budget gap

Although the so-called Gang of Six's proposalfor averting debt-ceiling catastrophe is getting the lion's share of attention right now, Representative Jared Polis has floated some revenue-raising ideas of his own, which the media has largely winnowed down to this: Legalizing marijuana would help close the budget gap. But if that shortchanges some of his other notions, Polis's spokesman isn't complaining. "You can't really blame the media for focusing on a controversial issue when you raise a controversial issue," says Polis communications director Chris Fitzgerald. "If it brings attention to ...

Salmon-Polis Bill on Competency-Based Learning Passes Committee
Today, the House Committee on Education and the Workforce passed the Advancing Competency-Based Education Demonstration Project Act, sponsored by Representatives Matt Salmon (AZ-05) and Jared Polis (CO-02), by voice vote. The bill would increase access and affordability in higher education by allowing institutions the flexibility to provide a degree that is based on a student’s knowledge and skills instead of seat time. “Our universities need to be allowed the freedom to discover new and innovative solutions to educate the next generation of leaders,” said Rep. Salmon, “Everyone agrees that this bipartisan legislation is a step in the right direction and allows students to enter the job market based on what they know instead of how long they have studied.” “By allowing colleges and universities to waive certain regulations in a controlled way, we can encourage innovation while still maintaining strong protections for students,” said Rep. Polis. “I urge the Leadership
Polis, Udall Hail Senate Passage of Proposal to Expand Workforce Housing in Summit County
U.S. Senator Mark Udall and Congressman Jared Polis hailed the U.S. Senate's passage of their bill to help Summit County support local businesses and jobs by expanding affordable workforce housing. The Lake Hill Administrative Site Affordable Housing Act conveys 40 acres of federal administrative land from the U.S. Forest Service Dillon Ranger District to Summit County to build affordable workforce housing while supporting a new Dillon Ranger District administrative building nearby. The bill now heads to the president's desk. "I'm proud the Senate joined with Summit County residents and me today to ensure that hardworking families and public servants have access to affordable housing while they live, work and recreate in the high country," Udall said. "Access to affordable housing is often desperately needed to support Colorado's tourism economy. This bill — which has received broad community support — will help support local businesses and bolster Coloradans' high quality of life
Polis Statement on Upcoming Executive Order Prohibiting LGBT Workplace Discrimination by Federal Contractors
Representative Jared Polis (CO-02) today issued the following statement after President Barack Obama’s announcement that he will issue an executive order banning businesses from receiving federal government contracts unless they have a policy prohibiting discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity: “This executive order is a major step toward ensuring that LGBT employees have the same protections against discrimination and harassment that their colleagues already enjoy. I commend the President for his strong leadership on behalf of the LGBT community, and for ensuring that taxpayer funds cannot be used to pay contractors who choose not to honor all employees’ basic right to equality in the workplace. “Nevertheless, there are millions of LGBT Americans throughout the country still living with the fear that they can be fired solely because of their sexual orientation or gender identity. It is time for Congress to follow the President’s example by passing le
Polis and Schiff Secure $20 Million in Additional Funding in Appropriations Bill for Cutting-Edge Energy Program
Today, Reps. Adam Schiff (D-CA) and Jared Polis (D-CO) passed an amendment to the Energy and Water Appropriations bill which would boost funding for the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) by $20 million, to a total of $300 million a year.  Started in 2009, ARPA-E is a revolutionary program that advances high-potential, high-impact energy technologies, leveraging federal funds to generate additional private sector investment.  Schiff offered similar amendments in 2011 and 2013, both of which were successful, and this one passed by a vote of 216-206. ARPA-E is modeled after the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), which has produced famously successful inventions for the Department of Defense, perhaps most notably the Internet. ARPA-E’s rigorous program design, competitive project selection process, and active program management ensures that our taxpayer dollars are being used wisely. In the few short years of its existence, the progr
